Staying safe in a dangerous world
(Page 2 of 2)

Nassau County police officials said that being vigilant and informing the authorities about suspicious behavior are ways to combat violent incidents.

More police will be present at large events such as last Sunday’s 5K run in North Woodmere County Park and the upcoming Long Island Marathon, police officials said. “When we have information that suggest we may have a problem or events around the world occur, we will have an increased police presence,” Skrynecki said.

In addition to the police, the Five Towns also has about 30 men and women who make up auxiliary unit 109 patrolling the communities. In logging more than 8,000 volunteer hours, it is one of the largest and most active auxiliary police units in all of Nassau, according to Capt. Danny Gluck, the unit’s commander.

The message delivered by the speakers — most of whom were police officials — was heard by Rabbi David Kramer, executive director of the host yeshiva. “I definitely got something out of it and I appreciated the forthrightness of the people who spoke, they were professional and there were no platitudes,” he said.
